Valentine's Day is upon us once again, and soon we'll all be scrambling to get flowers and chocolates and godawful stuffed animals to show our significant others we give a damn. (By the way, if you do, skip the stuffed animal and go for something original, like a live iguana or a Maserati, depending on your inclination.)

We've compiled a list of Miami restaurants offering prix fixes for next Tuesday night's romantic dinner (we also included some menu highlights). Now there's no excuse to forget to make a reservation.

Be fruitful and try not to multiply, you Romeos and Juliets.
